  1. Joe, Joel Gruhn here, Barrington RI.

    Interesting point you make about the makeup of autopsy participants in the Dorthy Kilgallen thread.

    I know of a similar story. If you would be willing to discuss, please reach out to me at joelgn@yahoo.com.



  2. For what it's worth, I had a left lower molar removed in ~ 1965,. behind it there were two molars and a wisdom tooth (also removed shortly after).

    The rear two molars tipped forward until there was  contact and have been perfectly stable for 50+ years. I think this is normal.

  3. yes, excellent. Please let us know what you need in terms of financial support. Joel Gruhn
  4. Bill - re g campbell...

    Sorry but I am confused. Isn't the ex sub commander buried in Arlington with a death year of 2000? maybe I missed somethhing in this thread.


  5. b, didn't peek first Please select one of the responses below Choice A [ 3 ] [42.86%] Choice B [ 1 ] [14.29%] Choice C [ 3 ] [42.86%] What is wrong with B?
  6. Jack, there is an add-on to IP Board (the message board software used here) that provides a photo gallery - exactly what you want. A full description is at http://www.invisionpower.com/products/gallery/ cost is ~ $65; it could be a central place for many photos galleries. Having it an integral part of the board software would, in my humble opinion, make it easier to moderate. I am wondering if we need to pass the hat. Joel D. Gruhn
  7. I don't agree with much of what Peter wrote, but I must defend his presence here. If a you work on your home, and thereby increase the value of your property, that increase is often referred to as "sweat equity" In the case of an open forum of ideas, that sweat equity is the sharing of research by members, and their objective commentary on the subjects at hand. IMHO I know of no other web forum where the moderators routinely fall back on justifications of "ownership". Yes - they own the server, and put up with complaints, and I respect that. But does that make it wise or legitimate to eras
  8. not to mention Tosh Plumlee... add a score more, who in frustration will simply decide that they have better things to do. We had a valuable and unique place here to share ideas.
  9. Forum: 1. A public meeting place for open discussion. 2. A medium for open discussion or voicing of ideas, such as a newspaper, a radio or television program, or a website. I have to agree, Len. A moderator must be moderate and accept that everyone is not going to always agree in a spirited debate, and be able to temper his/her defensiveness. The threads were disappeared, which to anyone would feel like like censorship rather than an open forum. My two posts were whisked away - and they were not critical of any specific individual, any more than this one is. I t
  10. Without getting into the details of cryptanalysis, it is my understanding that having even a short piece of known plaintext incorporated into a coded message drastically reduces the computer time required to break the code in a brute force attack. This is called 'gardening". As described in the Wikipedia article on Gardening (cryptanalysis): In cryptanalysis, gardening was a term used at Bletchley Park, England, during World War II for schemes to entice the Germans to include known plaintext, which the British called "cribs," in their encrypted messages. This term presumably came from RAF
  11. Greg, I am interested if you could please post the rest for all to similarly review.... jdg
  12. I believe it would have been Itek, a bunch of very savvy optical engineers; they designed photo reconnasence cameras such as the CORONA. I had a friend who worked there in mid '70's at the California office near Moffitt Field where they serviced the U2 cameras. They would be good at microdensitometry, where the pixels are very very small. The wikipedia page offers a fairly complete history. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itek Joel
  13. from: http://www.macjannet.org/files/publication...aster/book2.pdf "The late George Bakeman, a long-time friend from St. Cloud, was in Paris, in charge of American Aid to France. His office loaned MacJannet a car and chauffeur, to help him complete the film. “Workmen were putting back the stained glass windows of Chartres Cathedral, and I got moving pictures of that,” American Aid to France was a relief organization, previously known as American Relief for France. It dispatched over $3,000,000 in relief to France from 1940 to 1946. It's records are in the NY Public Library, but for some
  14. I believe that George W. and Mary D Bakeman had no sons. Their two daughters, Kathleen and Beryl, were born ~1920 and ~1924 respectively. Joel
  15. Perhaps we need a new thread title... something like "The Neverending Trial of Cyril Wecht" Erie-based judge to preside at Wecht retrial Friday, October 31, 2008 By Paula Reed Ward, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette The retrial of former Allegheny County Coroner Dr. Cyril Wecht will be heard by U.S. District Judge Sean J. McLaughlin, who is based in Erie. The trial will be held in Pittsburgh. Chief U.S. District Judge Donetta W. Ambrose made the assignment this afternoon. U.S. District Judge Arthur J. Schwab was removed from the case by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in September. The three
  16. Court: Wecht can be retried, but different judge must hear the case Cyril Wecht may have to stand for a re-trial, at the prosecutions option, but with a new judge. The old judge, Schwab, was reported to arbitrarily keep the jury empaneled after they said they were deadlocked - and appeared to be pushing them unduly for a conviction. from the ruling: "We will direct that Judge Schwab be relieved of further duties on this case and that the Chief Judge of the District Court assign a new judge to handle any future matters in the case including any retrial." Full story in the Pittsburgh Post-Ga
  17. Clearly the feds are on a mission to get Dr. Wecht. Schwab set a new trial date for May 27. ------------------------- The story continues, unfortunately.
  18. Is Judge Schwab fishing for a conviction? It surely seems that way. from http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburgh...l/s_560488.html Wecht jurors say they are deadlocked The jurors in the federal public corruption trial of former Allegheny County Coroner Dr. Cyril H. Wecht have indicated they are deadlocked on all counts, but will return Monday to try a final time to reach a unanimous verdict. U.S. District Judge Arthur J. Schwab polled each juror this afternoon, and each said he or she was "hopelessly deadlocked" and that further deliberations would not help. Before declaring a hung
  19. It appears the jury in the Wecht trial is having difficulties - perhaps with one holdout juror? Wecht jury continues minus-1 from http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburgh...l/s_560257.html "U.S. District Judge Arthur J. Schwab this morning decided to go with a panel of 11, after a juror who left ill yesterday said he could not continue. The judge said Juror No. 1's doctor advised the juror that the stress of deliberations was too much for him. This afternoon, Wecht's lawyers filed an emergency motion requesting that Schwab reverse his order to dismiss the juror -- Stanley Albright, a pri
  20. CIA Releases Two Significant Collections of Historical Documents Two significant collections of previously classified historical documents are now available in the CIA's FOIA Electronic Reading Room. The first collection, widely known as the "Family Jewels," consists of almost 700 pages of responses from CIA employees to a 1973 directive from Director of Central Intelligence James Schlesinger asking them to report activities they thought might be inconsistent with the Agency's charter. see: http://www.foia.cia.gov/ http://www.foia.cia.gov/browse_docs.asp?do...p;showPage=0001
  21. I like turning points... any of... An evening with the last Neanderthal clan. The march of British troops under Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith from Boston to Lexington and the skirmish at North Bridge in Concord MA. The charge of the 1st Minnesota Regiment at the Battle of Gettysburg. With Wilbur and Orville at Kitty Hawk. /jdg
  22. I just went over the taped interview with Karl to refresh my memory. He recalls the Lipski Oldsmobile as white in color. I asked him (because of the Bowers testimony) if there was any blue on the car and he could not recall one way or the other. My apologies to the readers here if this seems to be an investigation in process, rather than a finished report. I am planning how it may be possible to either tie this car into the assassination, or alternatively, to rule it out. All comments and suggestions would be appreciated. jdg
  23. Lee - Don't take it personally. I tend to play the devil's advocate sometimes, so that is why I question everything , no matter what side of the picket fence it falls on. It's all in the name of bulletproof (excuse the expression) evidence for our side. If I don't question it, someone else will. The car you are describing, and the connections made, is great research, and I am in no way trying to diminish it. I'm just making sure that we aren't "evidence leaping" by saying that the '59 Olds wagon Bowers saw MUST be the one you ran the VIN on because of the small number of '59 Olds wagons
  24. Thank you Lee... I would be gratefull for any further information you have, to be shared with other forum members, including especially any information on, or photo of. Martin. I cannot rule out Charmichaels as being the final resting place for the Olds... It was large and convienient, however Karl was explicit that the junkyard was WEST of Mound, and Charmichaels is a few miles east. He also spoke of wanting to go "out there" and look for the car. In that area, out is west and in is east. I have never heard of Alsos or any other project name. Karl spoke of being driven around Munich, and
